Lightroom 6 Catalog size

iMac (Late 2012) 27” ; processor 2.9 Ghz intel Core i5 ; Memory 24 GB

My photos and the catalog are located on an External Hard drive USB-3

The total number of photos managed by Lightroom 6 catalog is around 60,000. Most foots are in RAW format: (Pentax DNG 30 MB and Olympus 15 MB).

The catalog size is 4.88 GB and for this reason (?) is in a ZIP format. The Catalog backing up takes very long time.

After Cache Purged: Catalog Backup Time with Optimization is 36 minutes

catalog.zip Size is 1.18 GB

catalog.lrcat Size is 4.88 GB

Is reducing Standard Preview size to 1024 has negative effect on editing or on preview only?   … as the 1:1 can be created any time.

What can be done to revise the Catalog size and backing up the?
